About Eat at Lu’s

My name is Lisa Beiswenger, and this website is dedicated to exploring food in all its forms: the good, the bad, and the ugly.This project began in 2011 when I began to develop vegan and vegetarian recipes for my cooking blog.  In 2016, the project expanded into a podcast and blog where I cook recipes from the past.  While cooking, I explore the history, science, and social life of food and cooking.

Testing a Gadget: The My Pint Ice Cream Maker from Dash

You scream! I scream! Ok, now let’s use our inside voices or we’re not going to get any ice cream!

In this video, I test out a pint sized ice cream maker from Dash.

Here’s the recipe I tried:

Coffee Sorbet
3 Tablespoons honey
2 Tablespoons cocoa powder
1/4 Teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup coffee (or 1/2 cup of water and 1 heaping tablespoon of instant coffee)
1/2 Teaspoon coffee liqueur (I used Kahlua)

Testing a gadget: The Watermelon Tap

In this video, I test out the Watermelon Tap from Profreshionals

I learned three things while making (and after making) this video:
1) Always open the soda bottle in advance.
2) Logically, I know that watermelon juice is sticky, but if you spill it all over your kitchen, it will make everything sticky and pink.
3) This beverage is better with gin.

Enjoy!
